Andreas Perez passes away

The Spaniard was involved in an incident during Round 4 of the Moto3™ Junior World Championship and later succumbed to his injuries

Following an incident during Round 4 of the FIM CEV Repsol Moto3™ Junior World Championship at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, it is with great sadness that we report the passing of Andreas Perez Manresa.

The incident happened in the second race of the day for the Moto3™ category, with the Red Flag shown immediately. The rider received medical attention at the side of the track before then being transferred to the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau by helicopter.

Despite the best efforts of the circuit medical staff and those at the hospital, Perez sadly succumbed to his injuries on the morning of June 11th.

Perez was a standout performer in the 2017 European Talent Cup, taking two wins and a number of further podiums during the season to end the year in fourth. For 2018, he had moved up to the Moto3™ Junior World Championship, competing with the Reale Avintia Academy team.

The FIM, Dorna, the RFME and the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya wish to pass on their condolences to the family, friends and team of Perez.

Yes, indeed mate.
In my opinion it shows very well that the sad stuff can happen everywhere and isn't limited to real road racing exclusively.

However, only the living can tell the tales of the dead. So here we are.

It is with great regret to announce the passing of William Dunlop (32) following a tragic practice accident during the Skerries 100 road races today. Thoughts and prayers to the Dunlop family.

https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/spor ... 91346.html
William Dunlop has died following a crash at the Skerries 100 races.

The son of the late Robert and nephew of the legendary Joey, William was making his return to the sport after pulling out of this year's Isle of Man TT to be with his pregnant partner, expecting their second child.

He suffered fatal injuries in an incident during open practice on Friday shortly after 5pm. Dunlop was racing on his Temple Golf Club Yamaha. The crash is understood to have happened at the Sam's Tunnel section of the course.

The 32-year-old was a winner at both the North West 200 and the Ulster GP.

A statement on behalf of the Skerries 100 organisers read: "The Loughshinny Motorcycle Supporters Club, organisers of the Skerries 100, deeply regrets to announce that competitor William Dunlop of Ballymoney, Co. Antrim, has passed away following injuries received in a tragic accident that occurred during practise which took place today 7th July 2018.

"The Loughshinny Motorcycle Supporters Club extends their heartfelt sympathy to William Dunlop's family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this very sad time."

Tributes are already flowing in for the much-loved racer and brother of Michael, who is also competing at the County Dublin event.

Those have been led by the Armoy Motorcycle Road Racing Club, who said:

"The Armoy Motorcycle Road Racing Club are beyond devastated to learn of the death of our club member and local road racing legend William Dunlop, after he was involved in an incident in today's practice sessions at the Skerries 100.

"Our deepest sympathies go to his partner Janine and daughter Ella, mother Linda, brother Michael and Daniel, Granny May, the Dunlop family, William's friends, team and wider circle.

"Such a lovely fella on & off the bike. He will be missed soo much by us all."
Ride in peace, William. It was great to have known you
